Geminid Press, LLC has announced release of a new science fiction adventure by acclaimed author Daniel P. Douglas: “The Outworlds: War Torrent” (ISBN: 9780692450048). In “War Torrent,” ancient reptilian aliens clash in a war that is the start of a new interstellar crusade orchestrated by evil ethereal entities whose intent is radical genetic purification of the galaxy, and Earth’s Stone Age humans are their next target.
“War Torrent” is a novella, and the first book in “The Outworlds,” a series of science fiction adventures set in the early twenty-fourth century at the fringe of human civilization. Although “War Torrent” steps outside that timeline, its prequel events, characters, and technology will have a major influence on the continuing storyline in “The Outworlds.”
The science fiction book draws on the mystery of ancient aliens, in particular, reptilian humanoids, and related conspiracy theories about their alleged, past involvement with humans and possible engineering of our genes. It’s also a military science fiction story with metaphysical and spiritual components. At times an outer space aliens conspiracy thriller, the bottom line is that “War Torrent” is a good versus evil story featuring unlikely heroes on a collision course with destiny.
Named a Foreword Reviews’ 2014 IndieFab Book-of-the-Year Awards Science Fiction Finalist, Daniel P. Douglas is also listed by BestThrillers.com as one of 2015’s Best New Mystery and Thriller Genre Writers. Douglas garnered these accolades in conjunction with his debut novel, “Truth Insurrected: The Saint Mary Project.” In it, readers plunge into a storyline featuring former FBI agent William Harrison, who finds himself hot on the trail of a major extraterrestrial cover-up.
